Blurb: Just a little love bite: When the monster comes out of the dark…sometimes he eats you up in every way you love.

Peter has lived with vampires for almost two decades, ever since his own parents were killed in a house fire, and he considers himself pretty knowledgeable about paranormals. Stopping for a cup of coffee in a diner, Peter finds himself turned on by the steady stare of a big Italian.

When he makes a pit-stop at the diner’s bathroom, he doesn’t expect a hook-up. That’s exactly what Peter gets…and he also learns he doesn’t know as much about paranormals as he thinks he does. His new lover, Balthazar, is a demon who is coming up on his one thousandth birthday. He kidnaps Peter, claiming him as his amina, his soul, a reward from the Gods for doing his job well for a thousand years.

Except, Balthazar’s job is sucking out the souls of the living and delivering them to Death. If Peter can get past the stigma of being bonded with a soulless demon, can Balthazar keep him safe from whoever is sending minions hell-bent on keeping them apart—not to mention Peter’s meddling vampire friends—long enough for their bond to seal?

Review: This is book five in the series A Loving Nip. This book added a different paranormal to the vampire’s series, a demon named Balthazar who claims Peter, a human, is his amina. I took that to mean amina is something similar to the term soul-mate or beloved. These two definitely did not have an easy time of getting to know one other as other demons came after them to prevent the bonding. As well as the vampires wanting to protect Peter.

I was glad to see Kontra and some of the others from A Paranormal’s Love/Kontra’s Menagerie in this book as well. It seemed there were a lot of misunderstandings about demons in general. All that was cleared up with the help of Draven. The fighting scenes were intense, I really felt for Balthazar when he felt he had no other choice but to send Peter away to protect him. It was intriguing about the way a demon bonded. Not to mention who they worked for was a shock.

Balthazar’s job had me raising my eyebrows but was pleasantly surprised at the way he went about his job. He didn’t seem so scary once I learned more about him. I loved the way he wanted to protect Peter by any means necessary. Powerful, emotional, and riveting this book had me on the edge of my seat as each scene unfolded awaiting the outcome. Looking forward to reading more in the series.

Absolutely loved it and highly recommend it to all paranormal readers.

Blurb: Sometimes you have to walk through fire to get to love and acceptance.

Tripp has one main job, and that’s to get into the cult’s compound to save the two remaining hostages. The best way he knows how to do that is to get caught himself and thrown into one of those cells. He’s an expert at locks and can get out of anything. He’s not worried until the guards put him in a cell with Jacob Klein. It’s only then that Tripp starts to panic for the little man’s survival.

Paulo Carreiro just needs to find work after retiring from the military, and he doesn’t want to ask his brother Locke for a job. When Phillip Avery calls him to come work for him, Paulo gets a weird vibe. The minute he sees the compound he knows something isn’t right. It’s his dumb luck that the very place he gets a job his brother is investigating for kidnapping gay men and holding them hostage.

Review: Each book in the Lakehouse Security collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I have books that are in my favorite list, and it wasn’t till I actually started reading this series, that I knew I needed to revise that list. Now I have my top five favorite paranormals and my top five contemporaries. This is one of my top five contemporaries.

Tripp knew when they went in to save the men being kept in cages that he had to do something crazy. He let himself be caught and thrown into a cage. He just got lucky that he was thrown in with one of the young men he was sent to rescue.

However this one pulled to him, that no other has ever done. And the funny thing is the kid never had to say a word to him. Getting the men out, took some expertise but he found that he had some surprise help.

Jake had been abducted and thrown in a cage by a religious nut case. It didn’t stop from hearing his mother scream at him at all times. When the man was thrown in with him, he was surprised that the man stopped the voices. What surprised him was there was one more man who could do that also.

Paulo hadn’t wanted to ask his brother for a job, but he knew he needed to. He also knew that he needed to help the men held hostage by a sicko. He was just surprised that two of the men wanted him. He had never had that before. No one in his past had wanted him, except for his brother. Now you have three gorgeous men and it is hotter than hell. I love Jake the most because he is the one that will bring tears to your eyes, but the others have so much love for him that he is starting to find his way back.

This book just grabs your attention from the moment you start reading and keeps it there till you have read every word. Hell my attention is caught by the cover right off the bat. They will also have you laughing at parts of the story. They have their serious moments, but it does have a bit of humor in them. I love how the characters are beautifully written with big hearts, and they will protect the men they love and their family with all they have in them.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. When Kelley puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Putting your faith in the unknown can be terrifying, but the rewards can far outweigh the fears.

Kort is a gargoyle and known as the friendly playboy of the clutch, while nothing could be further from the truth. As much as he flirts with almost every available male that enters the gargoyle’s estate, he’s never taken any to his bed. Kort is waiting, just as he has been for over three hundred years. After watching a number of his buddies be blessed with their mates, he has faith that Fate will soon reveal his own other half.

When Kort smells something wonderful on the clothes of a fellow gargoyle’s mate, he is quick to question the human. He suspects the other man has been in contact with his mate. Learning that the owner of the scent, a human named Mace Capston, was just in the emergency room, Kort locates the human’s home and takes up a vigil. He waits impatiently for his opportunity to speak to the human.

The first time he has a conversation with the injured man, however short and in the darkness, leaves Kort eager for more.
When Mace’s attacker returns, Kort whisks the cute human to safety…too bad his mate passes out from fear in the process.

Can Kort convince Mace that the creature from the dark is not the real monster?

Mace was a twenty-four year old virgin when he met Jessup, now he wished he never had. He was great at times, but this wasn’t the first time he took his anger out on him. It was Mace’s first broken arm from the man though. He called the only man he considered family, his boss Wren.

Wren had hugged Mace, carrying his sent home with him. That was the way Kort figured out that the sexy Mace was his mate. Now to protect the man from the asshat and show him that they were meant to be together.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. When Charlie puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Review: Each book in the Pickleville collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Owen had a life that he loved until his car accident took his abilities to use his legs. He did what most people who lose a part of themselves do, he got angry. He lived with his sister first, then she sent him to live with his brother.

Unfortunately his brother knew he could not help him, so he basically dumped him off at the Heath Farm. Talk about pissed off. There was one person that made him want to change and one person there that helped him to change. Owen starts getting to know Neil, and his heart starts feeling like he is at home.

Neil is the sweetest young man who you have ever met. He is mentally slow, but his heart is the biggest you have ever seen. When you meet him, you would not think he is an alpha, but let me tell you Owen sure learns it. These two are perfect together and I can see a strong future for them both.

I had not heard of April Kelley till I started reading this series and I was amazed with the stories she comes up with. The guys at the ranch have so much compassion and love that it makes you wish you were right there with them. I have books that are in my favorite list, and it wasn’t till I actually started reading this series, that I knew I needed to revise that list. Now I have my top five favorite paranormal and my top five contemporary. This is one of my top five contemporaries.

Blurb: Cage has finally had enough of Rob’s hot and cold routine. The flirting one minute and avoiding him the next is getting old, so he drives up to Rob’s cabin to demand answers. Except the ones he finds aren’t the ones he expected, and he isn’t sure what to do with them. That’s when things get hairy…literally.

Rob is a shifter. He and Cage are from two different worlds, and he doesn’t stand a chance at being more than friends with the cute human. Unfortunately his bear won’t take no for an answer and keeps insisting Cage is theirs. He escapes to his cabin hideaway to think—when Cage shows up, hammering on his door, Rob can’t resist any longer.

When Rob is caught unawares by a hunter, things almost end before they really begin, but a wolf jumps into the fray, and the tenuous relationship between Cage and Rob gets pushed to the breaking point. Noah is a wolf shifter hunting his sister’s killer, but on the trail he unexpectedly scents his mates.

The only problem is they are already a couple and might not have room for one lonely wolf.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book was originally from an anthology and later released as an extended solo title. Now here it is again as the start of a new series, a spinoff of the Pack Valley series. Which can I say, I am not disappointed with.

This was a short and sweet little book. It takes three sexy men who each have heartache in their pasts and gives them a happily ever after, together.

It also had plenty of sexy scenes and a good amount of humor mixed in throughout. The moment when Rob changed into his bear the first time was hilariously. The way bear Rob thinks about the way Cage was reacting to having a bear in the cabin had me rolling.

When it came time for the three men to share their stories, each was sad. All three have been hurt in some way. What I find interesting was the way Rob’s story ties into the Pack Valley series. Once he went into details, I knew immediately who he was related to.

I really liked how the three of them fit together. As a whole unit they each give the others something they were missing. They just all worked together somehow. Plus, really they are pretty damn sexy together.

This was a good book and I cannot wait to see where this series will go.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Hot damn Derek has given me a truly hot story. I mean out of the ball park hot. There is something about a straight man admitting that he wants a little bit of sausage. This story is about two friends who are attracted to each other, although one doesn’t know it yet.

When Randy’s best friend came to him for a bit of help, he knew he could help. The thing was he is gay whereas Jake is not. The thing is Jake was not as gay as he thought he was, because when a storm hits it is Randy he goes to.

Some hot sex with a bit of love mixed in is just a bit of this story. I must admit that I would love for a longer story that has a bit more meat to it. These two guys are fascinating and I want to hear more about them. Damn book turned me the hell on and left me wanting more.

I had a blast reading it and can guarantee that if you want a quick fix this is it for you.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Whitedell Pride collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved.

Keenan was a human living among shifters and other paranormals. He knew what mates meant to each other and wanted his. He knew that Jonah was here, but he wasn’t sure that Jonah wanted him. Hell he wasn’t even sure Jonah would come back. He had first seen Jonah when he was rescued.

He felt the pull to be with the man, but when he asked Jonah flat out if they were mates he told him yes however he couldn’t be with him yet. Right after that Jonah took off leaving Keenan alone. Keenan was about to give up, when a call from Jonah brought it all back to the fore front.

Jonah did in fact want his mate, but he needed to save his friends. He had to get them to safety before he could go back. He knew his mate wanted him but even that would not be enough to keep him there. When Keenan is kidnapped and about to be eaten alive, it is up to Jonah to save him. It is up to Keenan to show Jonah his love and that they were perfect together.

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Catherine puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Review: Each book in the Lakehouse Security collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I came across this series about a week ago and I can honestly say that it is going to be one of my top three favorite stories. I have read similar stories that are men that are hired to save people, but this one adds a twist to them. I am not so sure about the guys past lives but they come off like they are all military trained. They have the strength and will to back it up that is for sure.

This is a love story that has the right amount of love, pain, temper, excitement and danger all rolled into an amazing package. I also love the fact that the brothers are extremely protective of each other and a bit on the annoying side.

Ryan is the youngest and pretty much is the cook and house keeper of the group. Although he has been trained the same way as the others. His brothers pretty much treat him like he is the baby and in a way he is. His heart is tenderer and his feelings show right off the bat.

However this time he gets his way, he gets to save the young men that are being held captive by an evil religious nut job. He knows going in that Zach is ill and is prepared for it. Other than being the cook and housekeeper Ryan is a trained medic. However he was not prepared for what feelings Zach pulls out of him. He can tell after getting him feeling better that Zach was a player.

Zach has been ill for a while now but continues to try to find a way out of the hell hole he is being held in. He was afraid that one of the other captives might already be dead and worried that Aaron had not made it out. So when Ryan shows up, he pulls his make shift knife on him.

Then the rescue starts, but he had not expected to fall for the man doing the rescue. Now all he had to do is to get better and prove to Ryan that he was attracted to him. Then they find out the real truth behind why the men were taken. Things are going to heat up real soon.

This book just grabs your attention from the moment you start reading and keeps it there till you have read every word. They will also have you laughing at parts of the story. They have their serious moments, but it does have quite a bit of humor in them. I love how the characters are beautifully written with big hearts, but if you cross them there is hell to pay. They will protect the men they love and their family with all they have in them.

Garner Vorzman suspects that his beloved—the other half of his soul—is none other than Brock Sanchez. While everyone considers the human an all-around good guy, he is also a womanizing playboy. Having spent almost one hundred years in the military, Garner draws on his knowledge of strategy. He uses the levity of the coven Christmas party to his advantage and seduces Brock.

Unfortunately, the human runs from their connection. Hoping if he leaves Brock alone he will come to crave what they’d shared, Garner waits for months. He runs out of time when drinking blood from other donors becomes nearly impossible. Angry at the human’s apparent obstinateness, Garner tracks Brock down and issues an ultimatum. Give them one dalliance every other week so Garner can draw the blood he needs, or their one night stand will no longer remain a secret.

If Brock agrees, can Garner turn the strong-arm tactic into something that will win the man’s affection?

Review: Garner, a vampire, finds his beloved in Brock, a human.

However Brock denies his feelings for Garner. Garner is determined to make Brock see they should be together no matter what others think. I loved how Garner gave Brock his space to work things out yet still managed to show up at times to show Brock he’s serious.

Although I understood Brock’s reluctance I felt he was using excuses to keep Garner away due to his own insecurities. But all worked out once Brock realized how much happier he was with Garner. The only gripes I have with this book were the demon being introduced for a very short time then the cliffhanger at the end. I certainly hope the next book will shed more light on the demon and Peter’s disappearance.

Packed full of emotions and tension this book delivers a look into two individuals who are meant to be together with one shying away from the other. Intense at times with an investigation which wasn’t much into the deaths of humans.

Loved it.
